Don’t Let This Be You…

While strolling the beach, it was a surprise to see a beached 60′ Yacht.  I couldn’t help but wonder if the owner took the necessary precautions to protect the crew and his boat.  What electronics were on board?  Were they functional?  Was the captain capable of receiving a weather forecast?  Was he knowledgable of the storm surges in that area? I noticed one dragged anchor?  What type of anchor?  How much scope?  Who had anchor watch?  Anchor alarm??  There were 3 people and 3 dogs on the vessel.  Thank goodness there were no injuries. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.  Before leaving the dock, know your boat, your crew, your charts and the weather.
